THE URBAN FUTURES CENTRE AT DUT PARTNERS WITH THE SDCEA TO SHOWCASE FISHERS’ TALES AT THE KZNSA GALLERY

The KZNSA Gallery is pleased to present the Fishers’ Tales, on view at the Park Gallery, 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, from 2 March to 3 April 2022.

On Saturday, the 2nd of April 2022, there will be a session pertaining to the Ocean Wellbeing with a Marine Specialist from 1:30pm to 2:30pm at the KZNSA Gallery in Glenwood.

This session is for all ages and look at how climate change has affected marine life in the ocean and how that has negatively impacted the lives of small-scale and subsistence fisher folk. There will also be practical steps given that individuals can take to make a difference and protect the oceans.

Fishers’ Tales is an arts-based storytelling project that collects the wondrous tales that fishers enjoy telling about their ocean adventures. This project explores fishers’ connections and emotional bonds to the ocean using a visual storytelling approach. Each story is accompanied by a unique artwork. The Fishers’ Tales exhibition also provides a platform to showcase the work done by young and emerging artists in Durban, as the project is specifically aimed to support creative students studying in the city.

The project contributes towards a bigger One Ocean Hub project for inclusive and transformative approaches to ocean governance. The project is managed by the Urban Futures Centre in partnership with the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance (SDCEA), and it is funded through the Deep Emotional Engagement Programme (DEEP) Fund (administered by the One Ocean Hub programme).

Entry is free and all are welcome.
